Wichita Falls Rallies Together to Feed Those in Need

Wichita Falls Area Food Bank is a winner of Walmart's Fight Hunger, Spark Change campaign.

The campaign comes at a critical time, as food security remains at a historic high this fall, with one in seven Americans in need of food assistance, including 12 million children.

From September 15 to October 5th, Wichita Falls residents rallied together to generate 4,689 votes for the food bank and put them at the top 50 of the online competition.

Thanks to Wichita Falls residents, the food bank won a $60,000 grant from Walmart to help those in need, sharing a part in the $3.7 million being granted by Walmart and its supplier partners to Feeding America and participating food banks and agencies.
